    Game Over!

    It's that time again; another mafia game opens up its doors and is ready to begin sign-ups. This is a mildly distinct game, so it be a good idea to read over these rules before you start.

    General How-to-Play Nonsense:
    Spoiler :

    Mafia is divided into two phases - a Night Phase and a Day Phase - and two factions - the Mafia and the Town. The Mafia will kill a member of the Town each night until their numbers equal or outnumber the Town; the Town can fight back by using abilities and lynching one player each Day Phase. Victory is acheived once either of the faction has subdued the other.

    Day Phase
    • During each Day Phase, every Player is expected to vote for one other player. You can just bold the name if you're placing your first vote for the phase, but if you are switching your vote write Unvote: (Lynch_Choice). Abstaining is frowned up, but is a valid option.
    • After ~48 hours, the Day Phase will end (Unless otherwise stated this will be at 10:00 PM EST) and the player with the highest amount of votes will be lynched.
    • Dead/Lynched Players are not allowed to communicate with any other player, living or dead, but they may post cases in the game thread. They cannot vote or us any abilities
    • If the player has any abilities, they can use them by PMing me.
    Night Phase
    • During the Night Phase, any players with an ability will use them. This nearly always means the Mafia will kill a member of the Town, but sometimes abilities will prevent that from happening or cause there to be multiple kills.
    • Night Phase is approx. 24 hours long


    And for the interesting Stuff:
    • There are 12 Townies (Section 13) in this game, no neutral or Cult players, and 4 Mafia(The Dark Hand). However, there are 12 Talismans in the game, distributed so every member of the Town has an ability.
    • After a player is killed, their Talisman is removed from them and set aside for the next Day Phase.
    • During each Day Phase, there will be at least two Talismans for each player to vote on. The player who receives the highest number of votes total will receive the Talisman they received the highest votes for. So if:

      at the end of the day, Parvati will receive the Rooster Talisman. At most, three Talismans from the available ones will be randomly selected to be given up for vote. The only exception is the Rat Talisman, which will always be one of three if it's available.
    • Day Phase ends at 10:00 PM EST. All votes must be in before then, but all private abilities must sent in before 8:00 PM EST. Night Phase ends at 10:00 PM EST as well, but all actions must be in before 9:00.
    • Each Night Phase, one Talisman, as long as the Town controls that Talisman, will give a randomly selected Townie a stronger version of their current ability that will replace the old one for one night/day phase.
    • The Mafia will have the ability to steal Talismans, though their chances of success are not 100%
    • There will not be a Dead QT, there will be a Mafia QT.
    • Day 1 follows all the normal rules - that is to say, the player with the most votes is lynched. But, the only days you can vote for 'No Lynch' are Day 1 and the Day Phase during which there are four players remaining (if it ever comes to that).
    • As for Editing, avoid it. You can always change spelling errors, but changing the content or meaning of your posts is strictly forbidden.
    • Private Communication is allowed, but not if you're dead. Be honest because I can't actually know if you 're not!
    Inactivity:
    • Because the ratio of Mafia to Town is so high in this game, anyone who signs up is expected to be on 2/3 days for the duration of the game (even after they ‘die’). Any player who misses three consecutive phases will be replaced or their character will be killed. This game doesn’t have to happen now, or ever so if activity levels on the forum aren’t right for it I can always wait until they are. And obviously some characters who lose their Talisman or have one that works during the Day won’t have anything to do during the Night, so they won’t be counted as missing.

    This game being hosted at CFC, so of course you are expected to obey the forum rules throughout the course of this game. Finally, this game is based on Jackie Chan Adventures but does not take place at any particular point during that series.

    Ninja'd? No, I always intended to use the first and third post :twitch:. Luckily, as far as I'm concerned which post I use for any of the daily info isn't really important. I'd rather forget to reserve a post than just about anything else :lol:.

    I was really surprised when I got into the first section of the rules and saw this is based on Jackie Chan Adventures. That's a game that simply can't be missed, awesome idea, glad I checked on it as I sometimes don't on small games but I'm definitely in
